I'm with you!!!
I haven't done any baking at all this year. There will be mince pies (because I have bought pastry - I'll be damned forever!) and MAYBE a chocolate roulade for new year. But that's it.
I do the same now...the kids are on their own; and if I bake it; I eat it!! lol. I may make shortbread..not sure yet. I will have pies for Christmas dinner....that's about it,
Those of 2004 are fabulous, indeed. In our house DH is baking - he wants to so I let him - I can do other things instead. Your bakery of this year is certainly also very good to eat. I would love to try.
Chocolate chip brownies are my family's favorites. I even have to send a box up to my son in Boise.
You have a better handle on this Christmas baking stuff than I do: I decided to not bake much, and then a daughter came last week, baked plenty, and left me the cookies! No of course I have to eat them so she'll be happy. ;-)
